There is no denying the importance of a quality video by an artist looking to expand his fanbase and overall notoriety. This crucial asset in an artists arsenal is fully-present in the new video from the St. Louis born, Los Angeles based artistry of Danny Dwyer. Making his debut on Lyrical Lemonade, Dwyer looks to entrance viewers in a medley of brightly colored visuals in his new video for his recently released single, “Holiday.”
The Lonewolf directed video’s theme finds its inspiration from the sugary-sweet hue of an ice cream truck’s ornamental trademark. Dwyer, with a reserved yet charismatic nature, serenades viewers in front of multi-colored walls, from the window of the aforementioned ice cream truck and through a thicket of trees. The classically trained multi-instrumentalist’s subject matter on this record, although glittery in delivery, is somewhat melancholic as he chronicles the complicated maturation of childhood friendships. Combining intricate storytelling and soulful-pop production, Dwyer executes his latest outing with effortless finesse and groove-inducing musicality. This ability not only speaks volumes to his ever-growing artistry but his undeniable skill as a songwriter. “Holiday” is impressive from a multitude of standpoints but the biggest may be Dwyer’s ability to deliver a song that not only gets you dancing but makes your heart ache as well.
